EuroFlashmob! Saturday 16th May

euroflashmob_webhome


Simultaneous flashmobs across Europe

Saturday 16th May 2009 – the day of the Eurovision Song Contest!

Join Heathrow Flashmobbers in a Europe-wide Flash Mob – taking place on the same day at 6 airports across Europe

12 noon – on the dot!

Flash your red t-shirt in the departures section of Heathrow Terminal 1

Flash Heathrow! Flash Paris! Flash Frankfurt! Flash Amsterdam! Flash Brussels! Flash Dublin!

Airport expansion plans across Europe threaten to undermine all our efforts to stop climate change. The aviation industry like to say “if we don’t expand Heathrow, then flights will just go to Frankfurt or Paris”. But that’s not true. Expansion plans all over Europe are opposed by millions of people and they cannot go ahead if we are to make the necessary cuts in emissions that scientists advise.

Join the first simultaneous flashmob across Europe to say no to noise, no to air pollution and no to climate change!

Each airport will sing their entry to the Eurovision Song Contest being held that evening in Moscow as well as other eurovision classics from the past (song-sheets provided!)

Join us! Bring your friends, wear a red t-shirt, bring instruments, download your favourite eurovision song onto your ipod or phone, wear a silly hat or wig, dust off your dancing shoes, let’s party!

Europe United Against Airport Expansion!

See you in Departures at Terminal 1 at 12 noon on the dot!

All over by one o’clock.

Tell BAA to get in tune! No Third Runway!

Hundreds of us joined together for an immediate show of force following the Government’s decision on Thursday to approve the third runway. Our message to BAA was simple:

We won’t let you destroy Sipson and put our climate in peril!

Brown and Hoon may think the hard part is over – but this is just the beginning…

The third runway will not be built!

Heathrow Decision Day Flashmob – We’re In It for the Long-Haul

heathrowdday_flyerback

With Geoff Hoon, the new Transport Minister, expected to announce the Labour Government’s decision on Heathrow expansion in December, we’ve announced our plans for a Decision Day flashmob back at Heathrow Terminal 5 – where it all started earlier this year.

Here’s the plan: unless *all* expansion plans for Heathrow are dropped, a Stop Airport Expansion flashmob will take place at Heathrow Terminal 5 on the first Saturday after the decision is announced. We will be unveiling our tshirts at 12 noon (on the dot!) in the departures section of Terminal 5.  Be ready to come!  Red t-shirts are desirable but not essential!

The flashmob will be an immediate chance to demonstrate our feelings if expansion is given the go-ahead – and show that opposition to expansion is not over for the Government by any stretch of the imagination. More details coming soon!

To make sure you get notified about the flashmob, join our low-volume email list by sending a blank email to stopairportexpansion-subscribe@lists.riseup.net
